How fattening are Oreos?


Bob Emerson   |   Member since 2007  |  10+ Answers Submitted  |  ✔ Verified

A single Oreo contains 40 calories, 3.3 grams of sugar and 2 grams of fat. Doesn't sound bad if you can limit yourself to two or three, right? But that's the problem—most people can't. In fact, science shows that the high-sugar, high-fat taste of Oreos is flat out addictive.

Furthermore, is it OK to eat Oreos on a diet?

Just don't eat the entire box of Oreos, and add a glass of lowfat milk for calcium. If your cookie indulgence leaves you wracked with guilt or trying to compensate by starving yourself the next day, tell yourself to eat healthily to make up for it, because starving can set you up for more overeating later.

Secondly, how many calories are 3 Oreos? Based on the information Kraft provided, I figure a regular “Original” Oreo has roughly 53 calories ( three cookies have 160) and a “Double Stuf” Oreo has 70 (two cookies have 140 calories ).

Beside this, how bad are Oreos for you?

Eating several packages of Oreos in a single week definitely will. The reason we've seen such a sharp increase in rates of obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes might be that most people are eating more than the recommended daily amount of added sugar.

Why is Oreo banned in USA?

Oreo cookies should be banned from sale to children in California, according to a lawsuit filed by a San Francisco attorney who claims that trans fat -- the stuff that makes the chocolate cookies crisp and their filling creamy -- is so dangerous children shouldn't eat it.

Are Oreos vegan?

SPOILER ALERT: Oreo cookies are NOT vegan. This is according to the Oreo FAQ page itself. "Oreos have milk as cross-contact and therefore are not suitable for vegans, " it reads. This means small amounts of milk may have come into contact with the cookies or the equipment used to make them.
